Will Gore be in court over his movie, "Inconvenient Truths?" For those who find the fuss over global warming to be inconvenient, the thought is delightful. The idea was publicly aired last week by the founder of the Weather Channel who agrees with those who see "global warming" as some sort of political and mind-control project to take over individuals' lives. Now it's percolating across the blogosphere and into talkbacks here on ZDnet.
The idea: sue Gore for fraud because of the untruths in his movie, and fraud for the very practice of carbon taxes or carbon trading. After all, the flic won an Oscar as a doc, not a fictional acount. Maybe we could sue Gore at the same time for losing the 2000 election which has left the U.S. trillions of dollars in debt and with spiralling gasoline costs? While we're unpacking various conpspiracy theories, perhaps we should examine the whole effect of the Iraq Occupation and American debt on crude oil costs. Is the current administration really trying to price Americans out of driving and thereby stop auto emissions while only pretending to be unconcerned over global warming? This is all so confusing my spots are beginning to ache, as Kipling's little leopard once observed.
For a less-than-admiring look at the "Gore To Be Sued" story. For some discussion of the idea.
